Easton's finished card
Saturday, February 28, 2009
YEAH!!!! It's Saturday!!!! I am so thankful!!!! We are having a going away party for my younger brother Noah who plays for the Detroit Tigers minor league team. He will be going to Florida on Monday :( But we are happy that he's still playing) It has always been a dream for my brother and my whole family....now if only he could move up to the Majors, then he could float me a loan so we could completely remodel our home instead of having to move. :P I think our family likes what we've always known. My brother Noah had a ford explorer that he handed down to my baby brother Mace, which Mace ended up wrapping it around a pole in the school's parking lot, needless to say we still have the explorer in my Grandpa's shed. What I'm getting at is the Bank (whom I met with Wed.) won't give me a big enough loan to do all of the things I want to, to my 1920's house, but they would load me enough to buy a house that is already 3 times what my house is worth, but I don't want a new house. So either I fix what I can with what the will lend me or we keep looking for a new house. Why can't I be independently wealthy????? Well I better spend some time with my son who is starving for attention as well as my husband, what would they ever do without me???? By the way, thanks for stopping by, I need to figure out some blog candy...my numbers are over 1,000...and everyone likes free stuff!!! But 500 of these numbers might be myself double checking my blog since I'm dyslexic.

Don't you just love when a creation comes to life??? I had this great idea to make a graffiti background with a ramp in front. Well I was working on this idea when I got a call about 8:45pm that my sister-in-law was in really bad back pain. So I assessed her over the phone and told her to go to the ER and Easton headed over to spend the night...so I also brought over my copics, ink, paper, glue runner....to finish my creation, don't you just love my obsession (this is my outlet for stress by the way)!!!! It is now 11pm and my the just took Marcee back and I now have 2 kids asleep, but Easton hasn't given it up yet...I just heard him Yawning so it won't be long!!! I used black magic on this card after I scored the lines across the base of the card horizontally with a ruler and a score tool on top of a mouse pad and made hash marks vertically....then I distressed the background with white ink. I have one more creation to try, but I may just settle and turn in a few creations that I've already posted. I may have to retake this pictures with my camera...I don't know if I like how they turned out, but they will have to do for now!!!!

Well I tried to use the inspiration, mosly I used the red and white and of course another Ian!!! If you can't tell, I'm totally in love with the Greeting farm!! I made this card for Easton b/c he was sooooo good at the Dr. office and at Walmart when we had to wait an addtion hour and a half after already shopping for an hour just to get 2 medications.....he was Awesome. We played had and seek with some plastic eggs at Walmart to "make the time not drag"!! We also had a picnic and hid eggs outside, it was georgous outside. Today I also made a card for my boss, but I'll have to post that later because I forgot to take a picture of it.....Easton was sick today, he has bronchitis. He has been coughing for 5 days and I decided that enough is enough...but, I had a hard time staying home today because my neighbor and my mother-in-law's best friend are seeing my Dr. as new patients, plus my favorite patient also comes on Tuesdays, but I'm sure they will be well taken care of w/o me but still I like to be there for them, I'll keep them in my prayers and on my mind!!!! Well...now I'm done with my daily (almost daily) post, time to blog hop!!!

Cherish Card...with details...
Great Grandma's buttons on lace flower......
Torn edge with paper behind.....
Kanon on the Lawn mower
Easton, Teegan, and Kanon on the Adventure
We had a great time at my Grandma's house, the kids and I went on "adventure" as Easton would say. We went into several of my Grandpa's barn's and found some fun things. Needless to say, we got dirty, but had fun. I made this card for the Anya Club to try and win some free stamps and I found some inspiration here http://www.thegreetingfarm.com/galleria/showphoto.php?photo=1047 and cased her card...I love the way it turned out!!! I used buttons and thread and had fun stitching the edge...(I took some close up's for more details), I got the torn edge idea from Chelsey Cook, I love her layouts AMAZING!!! Well that's all for now, I am typing this Sunday night so I'll be ready to Post MONDAY morning.... :) I love when I'm ahead!!!
Last night we went to Kev's Aunt Soni's house and I of course took my Copics to color all of the Anyas and Ians that I spent Friday at the conference cutting out...(bottom Pic) Anyways Aunt Michelle was coloring with my stampin up markers for the first time and she colored the cowboy and I made a Cowgirl in purple for K-State (her favorite color) and colored the horses to match her horses she was thrilled. I'm going to mail this on Monday, and I know that she'll love it. Her husband's name is Mark, therefor the M and M ranch...Well off to Grandma's House!!!

Well, I don't know about you but I'm soooo glad it's S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y!!!! I just finished my Dreaming Ian and I'm sooo proud of him, I already e-mailed him to the greeting farm...but now I need to get finished on my new designs!!!! I made him for the Birthday party of Bobby, Kevin's cousin tonight. It started out as a joke b/c his mom made him a white cake with sprinkles and pink frosting sooo, I played off that and made Ian sleeping in pink hearts with pink shorts...just a joke but with the black hair, I really like how it turned out!!! Easton is taking a nap, I think he might be getting a touch of what everyone else has had this winter... He now just has a cough and hopefully that's all he gets!!! I don't know much but I need to plan some vacation time!!! We are thinking about planning a trip to Az. I've never been and Kevin's dad lives down their...so they can show us around (Kev and I end up mad at each other b/c neither of us know how to get around in big cities). However for Christmas my mom bought us one of those map things for the car, if we could just figure out how to work it :)!!!! My neighbor who is 78 fell yesterday and has to come see our oncologist on Tuesday, so she could use some prayers!!! We have been taking them dinner and she seems better other then the bump on her head, bruise on her arm, and sore hip, I can't wait to get old.....well I better take advantage of the time and stamp before Easton wakes up, I have 2 more Birthday cards to create before tomorrow, which is my GRandma's birthday!!!

When I color my Ian's and Anya's I don't want to give them away b/c I'm afraid that whom ever they go to will throw them away and after all of my effort to make them sooooo cute...I just hate to part with them, I try to find a special home for them but I also know that they can't keep my cards for ever, so a solution...why not make them laminate? with a magnet on the back so the person could use them and not just have them setting around...or if the get enough of them from me the could have some "little dolls" for their child to play with!!! Yeah!!! Now I can sleep at night!!!! Hope you have a great Thursday!!! I have Zoomba tonight and then Gray's Anatomy, and maybe spa time, plus a margarita :)!!!!

Last night I went to Zoomba (an exercise class) and then we went to my brother's to set in their hot tub, and then I invited Kanon to spend the night (I am truly crazy), we took Easton's tent downstairs and had a party, the boys loved it!!! We went to story hour today and then to Burger King to eat and play in their play land. Then back home for painting and then a nap!!! Yeah!!! I love nap time!!!! I quickly picked up the house, put the laundry away, swept the floors and did the dishes so that I could make some cards. I was trying to come up with something Awesome for the Anya DT, but I don't think this is my best card...so I'll try again....it always seems the harder I try to make some thing creative the less it actually works..but I love trying!! See ya later, have great Wednesday!!!

Today I took Easton to a birthday party @ Jumpin Jay's. The have big aired up things that the kids can jump on, slide down and climb on.... He had a blast, we were invited the night before so I whipped up a quick family favorite present. I got a balloon and this time I stamped the image that I made the card with from the Pink Cat Farm Animals set with Stazon ink, I roll up some money and then stick it in the balloon and fill it up with water. (It's a great summer birthday present) Easton and I also made a birthday card with ducks behind clear acetate paper and then colored in the Duck with stampin up markers...I should have used my copics the color sooooo much better, Easton also wanted to use the cuttle bug...it's his favorite scrapbooking tool. At the birthday party, I really wanted a picture of Easton with the Helmet in the boxing ring I climbed in the ring and helped him with the hat and as I was taking the picture he clocked me... got to love the boys!!! I also had to take a picture of him after the birthday girl's mom gave him a camera to take some pics with he went and grabbed a little girl he "thought was cute" and her hold still so he could take her picture, and she posed for him, What a Womanizer at 3!!!! We also played outside with bubbles..it was cold but I bought some for Valentine's day and he wanted to, I'm such a sucker!!! He also rode his bike around and to get him to take a picture I had to say " Are you trying to run over me and then it was a game to see if I could take the picture before he ran me over, typical boy!!! Over all a great day, though the sermon could have had a little more meaning for this week....I need to get a good woman's bible, and suggestions?

Well, my Grandpa looked better and is feeling better. You know they don't feel well when they ask to go to the hospital...they were still doing some tests on him after I left at 1pm and we are waiting for results. My problem is that I worked in ICU for 2 years and now in oncology at a Clinic and in both places I would get results ASAP!!! Almost every test we order for that day we get results w/in an hour or less. So when someone I love is in the hospital, it is one of the hardest things for me is to be patient when I know how long it takes to get results!!!!!!! So I'm trying to wait and find out, but it sucks not knowing what we are dealing with. Anyways I have a few more scrapbook pages to share and I finished this yesterday, but I still have a few pages to share tomorrow. Easton LOVED the book by the way, we read it and read it, and read it. He said it was his favorite book, of course that totally sunk my heart...well back to work I go...tonight Zoomba class. (a dance/exercise class) Hope you have a great Thursday and thank you for your prayers!!!
